in environmental law, a site for the deposit of waste on to or into land where the site is a waste disposal site, or used for the storage of waste. The fact that a site for the deposit of waste is at the place of production of the waste does not prevent the site from being a landfill.
Completed in 2011, Qatar's Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre (DSWMC), the first of its type in the GCC, comprises a waste sorting and recycling facility, an engineered landfill, a composting plant, and a 1,500 tonnes per day capacity waste-to-energy incineration plant.
On the tender documentation it was stated: 'Considering the level of complexity of the existing dump site in Barka along with its environmental and social hazards, the need for an engineered landfill has becomes one of the most important projects, and one that needs to be expedited."
Tremendous effort A spokesman said "be'ah has been putting tremendous effort in tackling the large quantities of waste by collecting it and disposing of it at engineered landfills. "It makes sense that this Eid had more waste compared to last, since Eid Al Adha has more waste from slaughter and the cooked meats that we have in Oman." This time, Eid happened to occur during the Khareef season, which has led to a challenge in Dhofar.
